    At least with the alcohol you can choose not to drink as much, with the petrol you don't have much choice as public transport is so bad! Gonna stock up on it all on saturday though, get in before the increase!

    Upping the price just fills the government coffers so that the MPs can give themselves more bonuses and the like, the problem needs to be augmented at the root cause and that is alcohol strengths.

    Stop the cheaper drinks from being as strong in alcoholic content say 1% alcohol by volume and the stronger stuff like spirits say need to be at least 25 years of age to be able to purchase and drink the stuff.

    Everybody has to have proof of identity no matter how old they look so no proof of ID no drinky simples.

    Crack down hard on those kids who drink for drinking sake, make them work in the hospitals where they would be mopping the sick and gore from other stupid kids, those who have an alcohol addiction put into a padded room with straight-jacket (same with the druggies) and let them do cold turkey both with alcohol withdrawal and drugs.

    See how they would cope then!!
    We are too soft in this country with human rights being used on a daily basis by kids and it will be to their own detriment.
    As for those kids who are just a nuisance, National Service for 3 years and no getting out of it.
    Soft! Soft! Soft! thats those do gooders in the Government frightened to lose the votes of the hooligans, druggies and all the other mindless characters who are now outnumbering us normal law abiding citizens nearly 2:1.

    Bahhhhh!!! don't get me started!!!!!!

    I'm with you if it wasn't necessarily military but an option like the American Peace Corp. I am too young for NS but did join at 15.

    No government would have the balls to would they ? [ Bring back National Service ]
    I bet if it was in one of the main parties manifesto's it would be a huge vote winner.

    my mom swears by boot camps!!

    I was a student nurse for almost 3 years. I worked on a ward which had a lot of alcoholics on it, its not pretty. I think they should be made to work on that ward...

    Interesting ideas on the booze - definitely agree with the strength argument, not sure what you define as 'kids' though...

    On the human rights part, not quite in agreement. Forcing 'national service' is not acceptable to me, unless it has a non military possibility (ie. community service rather than military service).

    Also, with the whole 'soft soft soft' idea, what happened when I turned out OK? I'm 25 and I know right from wrong. I didn't hang around on corners or beat old grannies with sticks...
